I am a mixed media textile artist with a BA (hons) degree in Textiles, specialising in Embroidery. I have been working as a professional artist for 28 years, and work from my studio in Nether Green, Sheffield. I love teaching and helping others gain confidence through creating. In experimenting with embroidery and mixed media textiles, my aim is to inspire, encourage and support students from beginners to those with experience. I also love baking, gardening and have three cats.
